The "aliens" in avatar were blue. Had the clue been correct I would have gotten that.

Also, "Amityville" should be acceptable since Ace Ventura and so is Austin Powers, even though those are not the actual titles of the movie.

The rock band the teenager was traveling with wasn't quite famous... or else... the title would have simply been "Famous."

I agree. They're on a ship that carries ore, they're not miners themselves.

I then thought that the clue applied to Alien II (Aliens), because there's also one survivor (the little girl), but the colony is made of various colonists, not miners per se.

If you're only counting what's officially on the books then yeah. It's pretty common knowledge, though, that he had his hands in exploitative rare earth mining operations in central Africa, was a money launderer for the Russian mob, the manager of several successful boy bands in the late 80s and 1990s including O-Town, the front man for the business side of Kaiser Soze's various "legitmate" operations, a soldier of fortune, a scratch golfer, a major shareholder in the Gringotts Wizarding Bank, the creator of the freemium model of mobile gaming, a personal friend of Globex's Hank Scorpio, financier of Crocs, and the owner of several priceless historical treasures the famed archaeologist Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones insisted "belong in a museum".

I really need to go see "Air Bud".

Since it is of sufficient stature to appear in this quiz, it's obviously a "must-see".

Technically Air Bud does not dunk a basketball but makes shots with his nose. In no game does he jump up to a basketball and dunk. Minor but true (I love that movie).
